Meet Trip!

Trip is a 3 year old Aussie/BC cross (with a docked tail) originally from eastern Oregon. He's was surrendered to the LaGrande Shelter in September 2008 and finally got another chance when he was transferred to OHS on their second chance program. He was not doing well at the shelter and has been at our house since Thanksgiving.

He's quite the catch, very fun and loving dog. He's an expert snuggler, playful and so wants to bond with someone. He's a powerful dog with a nice athletic body and willingness to please. A great combination for someone looking for a agility or herding companion. Speaking of herding, he's been tried on sheep, and shows a keen interest that could be cultivated. He can go both directions, is willing to stand up to sheep and would make a great hobby herding dog with some practice.

He gets along well with other dogs, although he can be a little unsure of himself sometimes. His reaction to another dog snarking at him is to turn away. He's a lover, not a fighter. He loves to play with our dogs, running around and wrestling.

We found Trip currently being cared for by Pacific Northwest Border Collie Rescue in Oregon state. For more information about Trip, click here!
